  • Good collection of cases, interactive, good pace
  • I like a structure and technique to approach cases. Having my differential expanded by seeing unusual things (we don’t all work in teaching hospitals)
  • Having a pathophysiological explanation to disease process – knowing why makes it much easier to understand and recall.
  • Good range of topics, both general and subspeciality. Excellent cases.
  • Range of topic, good selection of cases, excellent speakers.
  • Content, excellent cases; interactive and very good delivery via Webex.
  • The breadth of cases. The level it was pitched at (I am a generalist at a surgical centre so this was just right). The interaction.

What impact will this event have on your future practice and professional development?
  • More confidence in reporting HPB cases and improved reporting accuracy
  • Would be very useful in day-to-day imaging as it will improve my HPB reporting.
  • This course has opened my mind to other odd and simple but odd looking pathologies. I will keep those in mind while I practice.
  • High impact, it has boosted my confidence in general HPB reporting
  • Sure it would add more depth and skills when reporting hepatobiliary cases
  • I have a list of things for further reading to help me in my daily practice.
  • I will use knowledge gained from this course in my daily practice as a general radiologist in a DGH.
  • Made me a better generalist. I will be clearer in my reports, better able to refer and more willing to ‘have a go’ at a difficult case.
  • I have gained a better understanding and good interpretation of imaging
  • This will definitely help my HPB reporting as I already feel more confident in reporting HPB MRIs and post operative cases.
  • Very useful to update HPB radiology skills.
  • Increased knowledge and very useful for MDT and reviewing MR images for reporting other modalities
  • Will improve my confidence and hence my practice
  • No doubt this improved confidence and certainly helpful for MDT
  • Improve my diagnostic skills and reporting quality
